Buyboats to gather in Urbanna
Buyboats will return to the Urbanna Town Marina at Upton’s Point on Friday and Saturday, July 31-August 1, for the Fifth Annual Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Homecoming. The Chesapeake Bay Buyboat Association is comprised of owners of the remaining buyboats who, at their own expense, try to bring the boats to ports around the Bay each summer so the public can visit them and understand their importance in Bay history. Urbanna is the port that brought the buyboats together and started this unique adventure.
